So far, the combat bomber is a relatively unique combatant type in the Chinese Air Force. The J-7/7A “Flying Leopard” combat bomber once provided the Chinese naval and Air Force with a very valuable modern remote against sea/ground-to-ground strike. However, with the development of China’s long-range attack ammunition and the emergence of attack machines such as J-16 heavy fighters, there has been no new news about the development of the next generation of combat bombers. However, the United States, which is far away from the ocean, is very concerned about the development of Chinese combat bombers.
On April 30, local time in the United States, the “1945” website published an article entitled “China’s Futuristic JH-XX Stealth Bomber Could Someday Look this” (the JH-XX invisible bomber in China will become like this one day) Essence In this article, the US media discussed China’s next -generation combat bomber.
The US media believes that under the current circumstances, the non -hidden combat bomber is not enough for China. Therefore, China’s future JH-XX must be a stealth combat bomber. The main purpose is to fill the lack of existing J-20 stealth fighters in terms of ground attack.
The design of JH-XX has fully borrowed the setting of the US Air Force FB-22 stealth combat bomber. The FB-22 stealth combat bomber has greatly reference and cited the relevant experience of the F-22 stealth fighter, enlarged the fuselage, used the big triangle wing wing Design layout to accommodate large -sized ground attack ammunition.
FB-22 stealth combat bomber
In the previous U.S. Air Force’s idea, the FB-22 will form a complete stealth combat system with the F-22. Despite the restrictions of various reasons, the US Air Force failed to obtain the FB-22 stealth combat bomber. However, China has already possessed the corresponding strength. Based on the related technologies of the J-20 stealth fighter, the JH-XX stealth combat bomber is developed.
In 2019, the US Department of Defense submitted a report on China’s military strength to the US Congress. In this report, the US Department of Defense believes that the main task of JH-XX is to fill the gap between China in the two fields of supersonic bombing and stealth bombing.
Therefore, the positioning of JH-XX and the “Board-20” stealth strategic bomber is not conflicting. The United States believes that the latter is the two Asian sound-speed bombers like B-2 and B-21, which are the same as the B-2 and B-21. Tactical stealth bombing mission.
Similar models displayed in China before
China has previously disclosed news about the J-20 in the South China Sea Police Tour and the East China Sea War Candidate, which proves that the huge interior space of the J-20 stealth fighter has a powerful long-distance combat capability. However, this is still not enough for JH-XX. JH-XX’s body needs to be enlarged again.
With reference to the magnifying ratio of FB-22 on the F-22, the body length of the JH-XX will be increased to 30 meters, and the weight will be increased to 100 tons. According to foreign media estimates, the current J-20 length is about 21 meters, and the maximum take-off weight should be about 37 tons.
You know, Russia’s Su-34 combat bomber length is only 23 meters, with a maximum take-off weight of 39 tons. JH-XX will be 7 meters long than the Su-34 combat bomber and weigh 61 tons. If JH-XX can be born smoothly, it is the largest and heaviest war bomber in the world.
So, does China need to develop and equip JH-XX’s stealth combat bomber?
Before the JH-XX stealth combat bomber, there were related pictures of the J-7B combat bomber on the Internet, and the death of the J-7B combat bomber project, we can also see that our current demand for combat bombers has already appeared very much. The change.
The J-7/7A/7B combat bomber represents the tactical concept of ultra-low-altitude penetration, that is, with the help of ultra-low-altitude radar blind spots to attack the enemy. However, this approach has been increasing in the current number of air early warning aircraft, and the increasingly complete air defense warning system is increasing. Any non -stealth flying object, even if the flight speed is faster, after being discovered by the other party, it almost declares the failure of combat missions.
The best way to deal with integrated air defense warning system is to develop stealth bombers. Traditional non -hidden bombers can improve their bombing ability through large plug -in ammunition, and stealth bombers can only rely on stealth magazines inside the fuselage. The reason why the flying wing layout has become the first choice for many stealth bombers is because the flying wing layout can provide a larger internal space of the fuselage.
An important reason for the JH-XX is not suitable for the design of the flying wing layout, which is that the JH-XX needs to accompany the J-20 offensive to form a complete stealth offensive combat system, which requires supersonic flight. After all, the existing J-16 heavy fighter is a non-stealth fighter. The temporary and J-20 match is not a big problem, but in the long run, only the pure stealth fleet combination can achieve maximum combat effects.
Therefore, the JH-XX needs to extend the fuselage so that JH-XX can have a long built-in stealth magazine to accommodate the ammunition outside the defense zone, or carry a large number of small diameter in the form of connecting layout, or carry a large number of small diameter. Guide bombs. At the same time, in order to retain air combat capabilities, the JH-XX may continue to retain the existing side-type magazine of the J-20.
However, because the length of the fuselage is longer, the side-type magazine of the JH-XX should also be able to accommodate the “Thunderbolt-15” medium-range air-to-air missile, and even the “Perak-21” over-the-dimension-spacing space missile.
Because the overall positioning is a tactical bomber. Compared with the “Board-20” stealth strategic bomber that has not appeared, the attendance rate of JH-XX will be more considerable and can perform the use of the frequency of using the J-20 stealth fighter. At the same time, because JH-XX has executed some stealth bombing tasks, the “Board-20” stealth strategic bomber will be able to put energy on intercontinental bombing and nuclear deterrence tasks.
The combat capabilities of JH-XX supersonic stealth combat machines can not only match combat with the J-20 stealth fighter. Even in the era of the Sixth-generation aircraft, the Air Force of China and the United States has entered the era of six generations. With JH-XX’s combat capabilities, it can still continue to use with the Chinese Air Force’s future sixth generation teams, and the overall cost performance is very high.
In this way, even if the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Navy have successfully developed their own sixth-generation stealth fighter, they still have certain defense vulnerabilities when they face JH-XX. The supersonic stealth bombing force.
